Orca House

Orca House is situated east of Dumfries and accommodates up to four young people between the ages of eight and eighteen. Orca House aims to create a safe, supportive and empowering environment. Orca House runs along similar lines to a family home, where expectations, boundaries and values are clear. The Staff Team at Orca genuinely want to make a difference to help and support every resident to move forward in a positive way. In the local community, there is a vast amount of opportunities for experience, activities and employment to enhance our young people’s lives.

I felt so appreciated. They looked after me at Orca.

I arrived at Orca not knowing what to expect, but while being here, I’ve accomplished work experience, learnt life skills and most importantly moved forward with my life.
